The good news– we are winning!
We are winning the battle for Life. Ending late term abortion is a step in the right direction, but of course we’re far from being at the end.
Interestingly enough, it was probably the ability to reach the youth that gave us the greatest lead. Our nation’s new generation of leaders, the millennials, are more dedicated to defending life than their parents. This is good news, as we defend the unborn and those who cannot speak out for themselves.
We are winning because life matters, and because passionate activists took time to educate people about the truth behind abortion…which is, murder. The Kermit Gosnell story drives true the devastatingly barbaric side of abortion and, despite the fact that the Leftist media covered up the story, the truth was still available for millions to see.
Does winning the pro-Life fight matter?
While we’re winning on one social issue, LIFE, we appear to be doing very badly on another social issue which is just as, if not more, important– traditional marriage. Without traditional marriage, we will not have couples procreating and there will be no need to be “pro-Life.”
Imagine a world where “family” is defined as cohabitation, “parent” means no more than legal guardian of a minor, and pedophilia is accepted as sexual orientation. Marriage has little value, because it can refer to any relationship
between consenting adults.
Imagine a world where there is no difference between male and female. The male sex dominates and women soon lose respect, dignity and rights that have been earned for decades.
Imagine a world where women’s rights have suffered because they are no longer protected from sexual predators…after all, it has been been established that there is no difference between the sexes.
How did this start? The respect for the differences in gender was erased– all were made equal under the law, but by doing so equal opportunity was lost. Anything that was not “equal” to both genders, would be a special privilege.
But could women’s rights go down quickly? Ask Iranian women. Ask the Iranian women who fought to overturn the Shah’s regime and had their equality and respect taken away while power was given to the dominant male sex.
The above, of course, is merely speculation and a probe into possible consequences should same sex marriage be legalized.
Time to Wake Up
But back to reality…if we are to win the fight and stop the redefinition of marriage and the restructure of society, we need to take ideas from the pro-Life movement, see what their winning strategies have been and reach out to the younger generation. It may be too late to win over the first of the millenials, many of whom enjoy sporting the “equality” sign, but it isn’t too late to start on the younger ones…
Defending innocent life, marriage and the traditional family will protect our society. While equality does not come naturally, we can support equal opportunity and we can defend what is right.
As to getting involved…five steps one activist shared which have been used during the pro-Life fight, seem to fit perfectly along with the goal of maintaining traditional marriage:
Tell the Stories, Paint the Vision, Seek Social Justice, Shine the Light & Stand Courageously.
Winning the pro-Life battle is important and while we have one victory, we cannot stay focused on it, we need to remember the other areas that are under attack by those who would destroy our society and culture.
